Siw, 21 Aug 2009Is it wise if I switch from Nokia E71 to Nokia N79? pls. reply. Thanksthis phone has a lot of bugs in the software and the phone often freezes(about 5-6 times/week)and I have to pull out the battery and start it again.
the UI interface of this version of symbian is slowing down the phone and the transition effects can't be canceled
the accelerometer works only when you rotate the phone to the left.
the touch d-pad doesn't work in all the windows of the menu.
when in standby mode, there is no clock on the screen(the screen is turned off); I have tried changing this from the menu and read a lot of reviews about this and...there simply isn't a solution to this problem.
i like about this phone that it has a very good camera (photo and video), an FM-transmitter(i can play songs from my phone to my radio in the car) and the battery life is relatively good for a Symbian phone- about 4 days of standby(unlike my other phone -Nokia N95)
I bought this phone for about 350 euro, so it's kind of expensive considering all it's problems
at this price i could have boutht a better Sony-Ericsson

Prasanth, 21 Aug 2009Hi,
I am form kerala and i have a problem with my nokia n79 network connection.I am using A... more@Prasanth
This is something strange and weird since I have been using Nokia Phones for a long time and with airtel I get the best signal and clarity......Also I would like to mention some times back I did experience this thing in my Nokia 3250 but it got rectified on its own....in ur case if the sim works fine then its problem with phone only if others Sims also work the same way as airtel......
Hello! Guys. Can anyone tell me about the menu key ? Is it hard to press? Because there are 3 other keys around it. Please reply me.
I am form kerala and i have a problem with my nokia n79 network connection.I am using Airtel sim.
when i move to an out of coverage area then newtwork will not show(or no network is there) right.
The problem is when i travel form NO network coverage area(phone not shows n/w symbol that time ) to any area having network coverage,
then network is NOT selected AUTOMATICALLY.(my phone n/w selection is set to automatic).then if i try to make a call it shows "No n/w coverage"
Only way the phone to regain n/w is by getting an incoming call or Switch off and on the phone.
This Problem is only for airtel connection. for all other connections like bsnl,aircel etc it works fine.
Also its not my airtel sim problem because i checked with diffrent airtel sim but same result.
also i checked those sim in another nokia phone (N73) those aitel sim works fine.
I contacted Nokia care in cochin and they taken my N79 for servicing and gave me back after 2 weeks. but the problem still exist.
they are saying that its problem of airtel n/w. but those airtel sim works in other nokia phones...
Then i contacted airtel office. But they are saying that its problem of my phone since those sim works in another nokia phone.
Any one having same problem???? please reply.
Is this problem exist for all nokia N79 phones?
A way to check this problem with out going to out of n/w coverage area and coming back to a coverage area is by
select - settings- network settings-change from automatic to manual- now it search for n/w providers and show a list of providers
-now choose another provider rather than airtel(the phone is having AIRTEL sim) for eg. say cellone.
now you will not get access to the cellone n/w because the sim is AIRTEL- why i do is that now the N/w will get disconnected.n/w symbol not shows now.
now manually choose airtel it self or cancel manual search and make option back to Automatic n/w selection . it search for home network.. unfortunately my phone not selecting Home network, showing as
"No access" . if i restart the phone suddenly n/w shows up.

own a N79 and these are the pitfalls with it.
1) Camera clarity is not so good in low light (There is a slight gap between the flash and the lens which makes the flash light fall on the lens)
2) You can’t get still images with your camera in N79. (Every time you try to click a moving object you’ll get the trail of the object in the photo)
3) Gets Struck if fully loaded with data/content in memory card.
4) Wall paper cannot be seen on the whole screen. (Need to create your own theme using that wallpaper to get on full screen).
5) Keypad is a bit slippery (wrong key can be pressed while you are typing a message)
6) The back panel makes small sounds while phone usage (not loud though.. but you can’t ignore it J)
7) Loaded with Maps 2.0 which is not up to the mark.
8) The preloaded themes are not so good compared to default themes in other nokia phones
9) The sound from the speakers is not loud enough.
Some good features
1) The camera clarity in video mode is really good.
2) The multimedia key on the keypad is really handy.
3) The 5 MP camera is really handy as a digital camera in day light.
4) The breathing navigation wheel is really cool. J
5) The N-gage gaming with motion sensor is good.
6) With a good network provider (in terms of browsing costs) you can turn your N79 into a mini laptop.
7) WLAN is good.
8) Inbuilt FM transmitter works perfectly within 10-15 feet range.
9) Preloaded oxford dictionary with updates is good.
10) Mail client is good to keep an eye on mails.
11) Many 3rd party applications can be installed and used with ease.
